Rowand leads Giants past Mets

Associated Press

Aaron Rowand homered and had four hits and the San Francisco Giants routed a makeshift New York Mets team, 10-1, on Monday night to split their four-game series.

Before batting practice, Manager Bruce Bochy talked to his team in the clubhouse about finding ways to play better on the road, an issue he referred to as "the elephant in the room."

Then the Giants (64-54) went out and did just that, improving to 25-34 outside San Francisco.

The Giants began the day next-to-last in the majors in runs scored.
